Abstract

I will provide a brief introduction to the main technological and scientific challenges to be faced in order to build a practical quantum computer, with emphasis on the case of superconducting quantum computing. I will then delve into a detailed explanation of a method to address the wiring of a two-dimensional array of superconducting quantum bit (qubits): The quantum socket [1]. Next, I will show how the quantum socket can be extended to a medium- and large-scale quantum computer and how it can help mitigate coherent leakage errors due to qubits interacting with spurious cavity modes [2]. I will then introduce thermocompression bonding technology [3], a method that allows us to further protect qubits from the environment and crosstalk. In particular, I will propose a new qubit design based on our experimental implementation of thermocompression bonded chips, where vacuum gap capacitors are used to reduce dissipation due to so-called two-level state (TLS) defects in amorphous dielectrics, which are the insulators presently used in our qubits. Finally, I will show a set of cleaning methods to further minimize TLS defects in resonators that allow us to reach quality factors in excess of two million at low power.
